favorses is the column that consequence taply amazes me, david pentagon, the "new york times" writer who opines brilliantly in a can't-miss column about tech products. i love this guy. today's product starts several enough, a segment of an npr-call-in seg meant that he was going to offered opinions, but to quote, all six callers had the same question -- which tablet should i get? it was a terrific jumping-off spot. however, for me, this question was the perfect jumps-off point not to figure out what's the best tablet, but to try to predict the future of technology stocks in general and the three standout players -- amazon, google and apple in particular. let's start with a personal computer. pentagon was all set to talk about which ones were the beth. while it's only anecdotal, nobody wants a pc? that means, we have to stay away from hewlett-packard and dell. there was a time when we actually wanted to weigh in on which computer was the best. now they're just plain irrelevant. that means the stocks are irrelevant, too, sell, sell, sell. second we don't want what's -- i think that intel i
, if the pentagon things they want men in combat and not women in combat to win wars, the court is very hesitant to tell the generals how to run the battle field and what you found is the distinction between combat and non-combat is blurred, and you send a woman over there in a non-combat role and you know what? she's in combat all of a sudden when there are attacks because there's no front line. she, however, is not getting paid the same amount of money and not getting the same ability to get promotions as the men, so this lawsuit is saying something different than prior lawsuits which is basically the roles have been blurred, and these women are really in combat and they are not being paid for it. there are interesting arguments here, randi. >> this certainly is not the first time, no women in combat policy has been challenged and come into play. this is very different, you say, but how have the challenges fared in the past? >> they haven't fared very well in the past, and i think number one the reason originally was, you know, women were considered to be too delicate and tender and feminine t
for their own support for syria. joining me now is nbc's chief pentagon correspondent jim jim miklaszewski. a speech that really didn't have anything having to do with what syria, clearly there's intelligence on the ground that has u.s. officials concerned. >> reporter: that's right, chuck. all the latest intelligence indicates that the u.s., nato, and particularly the syrian people are really staring the worst case scenario directly in the face. just about the time rebel forces started to make significant advances in the capital da m damascus, u.s. officials tell nbc news that the assad regime informed its chemical weapons corps to get prepared. and just about that time, u.s. intelligence noticed a flurry of activity around several of the chemical weapons sites, an indication, perhaps, that the chemical corps is moving two precan cursor chemicals to the same locations to weaponize artillery shells and once you combine those precursor chemicals it creates that deadly nerve gas. now the question is, as president obama threatened, there will be consequences if assad regime does use chemical

in session. the fight to allow women to fight in combat roles. the pentagon says it cannot comment on the current case and while the says it is working on a solution, some of the women filing the lawsuit says that doesn't change the discrimination they feel they suffered so far. >> my gender has never been a factor in accomplishing my unit's mission. >> i would be assigned positions based on my gender rather than my qualifycation or accomplishments. >> it doesn't make sense for the military. megyn: do they have a case? jonna spilbor ... jonna they can serve in combat-related roles. two of the women have purple hearts for flying helicopters. but there are hundreds of thousands of jobs potentially available to men that are not available to women in the military and they say it's a discrimination issue. >> i think they are right. kudos to them for being so brave. being on the battlefield there is no bigger job for anybody in the military. why not treat this like any other title 7 case. they are women. you can't say because you are a woman you can't do something that a man can do unles
. it doesn't include the budget consequences. $55 billion would be cut from the pentagon and another $55 billion slashed from domestic programs. an estimated 2 million jobs could be lost pushing the economy back into a recession adding to the misery to those facing tough times by ending jobless benefits for the long term unemployed. steve is live in washington. where do we stand at this point? >> reporter: two sides did do something today. they appeared on the sunday talk shows but they haven't negotiated an actual deal. john boehner blasted the white house plan which was put forward last week. boehner says the president essentially wasted the last three weeks since the election with nonsense. >> the president is asking for $1.6 trillion worth of new revenue over ten years, twice as much as he been asking for in public. stimulus spending that exceeded the amount of new cuts he was willing to consider. it was not a serious offer. >> reporter: and boehner says he was flabbergasted when he was given the proposal. >> heather: and democrats are defending themselves? >> treasury-secretary tim
with questions about unprecedented and some inappropriate access to classified information. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr spoke to the filmmakers. >> don't think she's a little young for the hard stuff? >> washington says she's a killer. >> it's a hollywood spy thriller with as much oscar buzz as it has controversy. "zero dark thirty," the story of the hunt for osama bin laden, from the oscar-winning powerhouse team of katherine big ga lo and mark bo, recreates how it all happened from the female cia analyst who finally figured out where he was hiding to the navy s.e.a.l.s who killed him. >> there are two narratives about the location of osama bin laden. >> reporter: the controversy? the obama administration has faced accusations it gave undeserved access to the filmmakers. in real life, everyone involved in the hunt for bin laden remains sworn to secrecy. but the filmmakers say they got firsthand accounts. they just won't say exactly how that happened. >> i think as a reporter you would understand we take prot t protecting our sources and sort of the exact methodology of our
the pentagon hoping to force the military to drop its policy that excludes them from thousands of ground combat positions. all four women are veterans of the war in iraq and afghanistan. they main the combat exclusion role is discriminatory. >> the policy limits my future in the marine corps. i would be assigned to positions based on my gender rather than on my qualifications or my accomplishments. this didn't make sense personally or politically and it did not make sense for the military. >> she also says this prevents commanders from deciding the best way to fight. >>> so what would you do with $500 million? that's tonight's record-shattering powerball jackpot expected to climb higher. millions of americans in 42 states are trying to parlay $2 into half a billion. alison kosik is live from times square this morning. what's happening there? 60% of ticket sales are expected to be made today. we know the odds are pretty slim, but people are still going for it. >> reporter: they are still going for it. you know, you talk about the odds, the odds are slim. 175 million to 1 are the odds that you'll
popular. if they want more entitlement cuts, more discretionary spending cuts, if they want pentagon cuts, the president wants them to specify them. and this offer is intended in part to say here's my math. here's the level of deficit reduction i can reach. if you think you can reach the same or more with more spending cuts, you go first and name them. >> yeah. >> so richard, we have everybody playing chicken for the most part. it's kabuki. you show your spending cuts and then i'll show mine. >> right. it failed before when the president was negotiating against himself. look, i'm going to come back. $400 billion of medicare cuts is exactly what you would want democrats to do if you want them to start dealing with entitlements. what are we talking about when we say democrats need to deal with entitlements? principally, it's medicare. so that's a huge down payment right there. you can say, well, i don't really believe they're possible, but that's a real proposal. what you're asking for in terms of the politics is that the president somehow solves john boehner's problems with his own caucus.
. but the pentagon insists he was held in accordance with the rules. if convicted, manning faces life in prison. >>> and in the democratic republic of the congo, the rebel group known as m-23 defied a call to withdraw from the city of goma. they say they're going the remain in control of the city until the demands are met. including releasing political prisoners and dismissing the national election commission. the congo administration minister -- residents fear they'll be caught in the cross-fire, and what's been happening there is hard to imagine. >>> bob dole has been hospitalized. an aide says dole self-checked into walter reid for a routine procedure and will be discharged tomorrow. they say he's doing very well. there were questions raised about his health today after senate majority leader harry reid indicated on the floor that he was there for something more than a check-up. he talked about his love for him. >>> well, it has been 481 days since this country lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? there's good news today, consumer confidence hit a new high, september
. by the way, the pentagon has to be included in that as well. the big challenge we face is practical and time. when speaker boehner has to get specific about revenues, it's going to be a lot of anguish on the republican side. what we're going to look at on medicare is whether what we're doing is reforming the subpoena and bringing down the cost or just passing that cost off on to beneficiaries by cutting their benefits back. that's going to be tough on the democratic side. >> how about wealthy people? what about means testing medicare? you willing to do that? somebody's got $1 million in the bank. should they get medicare? >> up to a point. >> they should get medicare? >> they should get medicare, and there should be means testing. we're doing that now. so the fact is a balanced deal is the only way we're going to go forward. now, i am not advocating we go over the cliff. my preference is to get it done right away. but will we be able to do that when up until the election it was an over my dead body approach on both sides? now we're hearing the speaker and both sides say the right things, but
, we must also ask ourselves, how will this conflict end? >> this is the top lawyer at the pentagon, general counsel of the defense department, jay johnson, speaking today at oxford university in britain, broaching a subject that as far as i know nobody at a high level of government has been willing to officially broach since 9/11. >> how will this conflict end? it is an unconventional conflict against an unconventional enemy and will not end in conventional terms. we cannot, and should not, expect al qaeda and its associated forces to all surrender, all lay down their weapons in an open field or to sign a peace treaty with us. they are terrorist organizations. nor can we capture or kill every last terrorist who claims an affiliation with al qaeda. i can offer no prediction about when this conflict will end. or whether we are as winston churchill once described it near the "beginning of the end." i do believe that on the present course, there will come a tipping point. the tipping point at which so many of the leaders and operatives of al qaeda and its affiliates have been killed or
to get to nbc chief pentagon correspondent. he's got the latest on the developing story. jim, what can you tell us? >> well, if you're with with the ian y iranian military, this is a good tale. if you're with the u.s. military, it's a fabrication. yes, indeed, that is an eagle scan or a scan eagle drone. it just doesn't happen to be one of the u.s. military's. the u.s. navy claims that all its scan eagle drones have been accounted for. the iranians have said they captured the drone, they claim, by taking it over electronically as it was flying over u.s. air space. now, the problem with this is that scan eagle drones are pretty common in that region. when it comes to technology, they're at the very low end of the scale. they're readily available to almost every government in the region. many gulf states have them. intelligence indicates that the iranians either stole or perhaps bought this from under the table from some gulf state nation. but it doesn't appear that according to the u.s. navy, anyway, that there's any truth to the claims that the iranians actually seized a u.s. navy dron
and principlely those cuts in defense will be very, very onerous according to the pentagon and everybody else. do you think that this is a feint or what they need to do just because it takes a while to get these things in order? >> well, you know, i'll leave it to them to decide whether it's a feint but it's dangerous. the defense cuts are devastating, they shouldn't happen, and by the way, they'll be a domestic cuts of comparable quality. actually that's really the republican leverage in the debate, not the tax issue but the spending cuts if we dealt with the tax cuts for 98%, spending cuts would still be there, still have the leverage we need. but look, probably the white house is being prudent. but this is serious. there's a strong disagreement but in the end the two sides have been able to negotiate in the past, speaker boehner's very good negotiator, negotiating the extension of the bush tax cuts two years ago, budget deal in 2011, debt ceiling deal in august of 2011, all those things have led to prosperity or -- faster growth and less spending. i think we should continue to work with him. l

ground operation would be necessary. the pentagon estimates it will take 25,000 troops to seize syria's chemical weapons stockpile. just ahead, general jack keane will join us live to discuss the implications of sending u.s. missiles to the board and why this cache' of chemical weapons requires such a response. >> more on the attack on our consulate in benghazi. james clapper walked house lawmakers through the details of the attack that ended with the death of ambassador chris stevens and three others. clapper trying to answer questions about president obama's handling of intel before, during and after the attack. tom rooney was in that briefing. welcome to the program. it's great to see you. did we learn anything? did the ball get advanced this morning? >> i got this briefing a few weeks ago as a member of the intelligence committee. date was open up for the rest of the house. i learned a lot. i learned we do not have adequate protection at our compound there in libya, benghazi. and if that's the case in other dangerous areas of the world, then we have got a lot of work to do at the
of rank. there's all sorts of money to be saved in the pentagon that will have no effect whatsoever on our defensive posture or our capability. >> but steve, i'm curious, though. what is the difference, in your opinion, between raising the top marginal rate and closing some loopholes? if you get $1.2 trillion in revenue, why does it matter so much more to the president that you do it by raising the top rate when the super wealthy, as we've described on the show, aren't going to be paying higher taxes? >> the issue is, joe, it's a question of whether it's going to be $800 billion or $1.2 trillion or somewhere in between. if the number ends up being $1.2 trillion, and we'll see where it comes out, it's hard to do it just with deductions. you end up limiting deductions so much that you cut into charities. you cut into state and local governments. you cut into a whole bunch of home mortgage. >> what about the buffett proposal? >> the buffett proposal is a great idea. the buffett proposal is a kind of no-brainer. >> how much does it raise? >> $160 billion over ten years. it's a piece of the puz

, quote, worrying signs of activity in syria, just in the past couple of days. pentagon correspondent barbara star, we're so happy to thank, is with us in studio this morning. barbara, great to see you. so the white house apparently hasn't revealed any new evidence that the syrian government is planning to deploy these weapons. >> what are we talking about here? they're not revealing it publicly but in fact there has been intelligence over the last couple of days that the syrians are moving their chemical weapons inventory around. and it's quite different. in the past we've seen them moving it around to store it essentially, make it more secure, as fighting's gotten closer. this time all of our sources are telling us, it is telling us, it is different. that what they are seeing is movement that could potentially signal the use of chemical weapons. this typically would be matching up the chemical with preparing it with a warhead. with artillery. with rockets. all the signs that they could be getting ready for an attack. very worrying. a lot of international pressure in the last several
